Realm of the Hungry Ghosts, Watercolor Monotype
26 x18

“Realm of the Hungry Ghosts I” is a Watercolor Monotype printed in two layers on 300 lb. Arches Hot Press Watercolor paper in 2007

Technique:
A. Overall image.
B. Line drawing of hand and alms bowl. Paint image with transparent watercolor on toothed Mylar. Preserve the white of the paper for whites. Let dry completely. Run Mylar through press to transfer onto damp paper. Let completely dry. Working directly on image, add final layer of watercolor (transparent, opaque and metallic.)

Desired Results: Fresh capture of pigment suspended in water. When offset in this way, the pigment sits up on paper surface, instead of sinking in as in conventional direct application. The washy translucent effect support the symbolic subject matter.
